"I'm Cruisin"

It has almost been two months since my cruise! I am sad that it has been that long. It was an awesome vacation. I have finally posted some pictures. We made lots of memories.

We dressed up nicely and had delicious food with strangers. I ordered ribs on the wrong night...

We posed for pictures on the fancy staircase...

We got to do one of our favorite things ever! Danced to Michael Jackson. Thriller to be exact. We were pros thanks to our Wii experience.

We went on some shore excursions. The first one we saw some Mayan ruins and flamingos.

The next one we went snorkeling and kayaking. Snorkeling was a blast even though I struggled with my goggles. I kept getting water in my eye. I even saw a swordfish!

We took pictures while we were supposed to be listening to instructions... oops.

We were almost the fastest kayakers in our group. They had a head start, so that is our excuse. We got to kayak by the dolphins. It was sweet.

Harvey ordered hot chocolate at dinner. It was 85+ degrees and she ordered hot chocolate. Apparently 'no thanks' really means 'yes, please' because I got some hot chocolate too. After this night, we were served hot chocolate with dessert the rest of the trip and we didn't even ask for it. *side note* The humidity did amazing things for my hair and my skin.

We asked this man if he would come back home with us. He really wanted to, but then he would have missed his chance to go to his home country. So then we asked if we could hide in his room. He had too many roommates, so we sadly said goodbye. His name is Mohammed. He is from Indonesia.

We watched Bingo... Really, who watches bingo on a normal night, let alone on a cruise?! We got the best seats in the house for the shows because we watched bingo :).

We met this man. He was our cruise director, Tex. He has some awesome dance moves. Our favorite was the sprinkler, shown above.

Bruno was our head waiter every night. Pretty much because we requested him every night. He and Mohammed serenaded us each night at dinner. The wait staff all do a dance or sing a song at some point during dinner. Bruno is from St. Vincent.

I got my fresh fruit for dessert most nights. Along with a scoop of sherbet, usually. I got teased by all the strangers who sat by us. Apparently it is weird to not like cake.

We had awesome towel animals on our bed each night. Most of the time we couldn't figure out what animal it was supposed to be, but they were still CUTE.

Again, we watched Bingo...

Our head housekeeper left us a cute heart on the last night. Special :)

We spent a day in New Orleans. We attempted to find real Cajun food. I'm not sure if we succeeded, but whatever we had was delicious. We also had an awesome cab driver. We should have taken our picture with him.

I'm already looking forward to my next vacation! I would love another cruise. Sleeping on a cruise ship is the best thing ever!
